Bright Spot #6: Collaborative Transition from Physician to Hospice Care
Dr. Andrew Mayo, Chief Medical Officer of St. Croix Hospice and great-grandson of the Mayo Clinic founders, talks hospice care.
The Mavericks are fortunate enough to speak with Dr. Andrew Mayo, Chief Medical Officer of St. Croix Hospice. Dr. Mayo, great grandson of the founders of the Mayo Clinic, spent many years as a family physician. When he was asked to help with hospice care, he wasn’t sure as the training given to physicians is to save lives. He, like many other physicians, wondered if hospice care was giving up on someone.
As we continue with our Bright Spots series, we want to dive into the importance for all healthcare providers, especially hospice to focus on the whole person and on better collaboration with family physicians.
The St. Croix Hospice Difference: Not all hospices are the same. As hospice care providers, St. Croix Hospice listens to patients and families to understand their individual wishes for the end-of-life care journey. With a focus on comfort and quality of life, our hospice teams across the Midwest provide care with dignity and respect. Talk to an expert to see how our award-winning teams can serve you, wherever you call home.
